Tokyo Olympics will go ahead says IOC chief

International Olympic Committee chief Thomas Bach in an interview on Thursday said the Tokyo Olympics will hold. The Game which was supposed to take place last year was put on hold due to COVID-19.

“We have at this moment, no reason whatsoever to believe that the Olympic Games in Tokyo will not open on the 23rd of July,” Bach told Kyodo News.

“This is why there is no plan B and this is why we are fully committed to make these games safe and successful.”

“This is why there is no plan B and this is why we are fully committed to make these games safe and successful.”

With just over six months to go until the postponed Games, doubts have grown about whether the massive international event will be viable with the pandemic still raging across much of the world.

Tokyo organisers have produced a raft of safety measures they say will allow the Games to go ahead, even if the pandemic is not under control, and without requiring vaccinations.

Talking to the AFP, Tokyo 2020’s CEO Toshiro Muto said that organisers were “unwavering” in their commitment to holding the Games this summer and that cancellation had not been discussed.

But he conceded he could not guarantee the stands would be full or rule out the possibility of a Games held without spectators.
